Okuma Cruz Popping Rod

$ 177.77

Cruz popping rods deliver a balanced approach to rod materials, length, power and action to create a fishing system where everything from giant tuna to trevally are taken with confidence and control. Featuring small diameter blanks constructed of a blend of graphite and glass and outfitted with premium components, Cruz are a beautiful example of the future of offshore popper fishing. Components favor braided lines with ALPS 316-grade stainless steel double-footed guide frames with small diameter Zirconium to quickly transition line loops from the reel to straight running line for extended casting distance. The handle assemblies feature custom ALPS aluminum reel seats, EVA fore and rear grips and low-profile butt caps on medium and medium/heavy models, machined aluminum gimbal on heavy model.
